Health Insurance – Canadian Residents
Revision, February 2012. Start of revision.
If you are a Canadian student from outside Quebec, you should check with your provincial medicare office to ensure that you have valid health coverage while studying at McGill.
If you are a Canadian student who has been living abroad, you may not be eligible for provincial health insurance coverage. To ensure adequate health insurance coverage, you may enrol in the group plan offered through International Student Services (www.mcgill.ca/internationalstudents/health/canadian-non-resident). Please note that this option is available only during the first month of each new semester at McGill.
All undergraduate students who pay tuition fees at either the Canadian or Quebec rates and who are members of the Students' Society of McGill University (SSMU) or the Macdonald Campus Students' Society (MCSS) are automatically covered by their applicable Students' Society's Health and Dental Plans. For details on fees, change of coverage dates, and on what is covered by the plans, refer to www.ihaveaplan.ca. If you're not sure of your eligibility, contact the Alliance pour la santé étudiante au Québec (ASEQ) at 514-789-8775 or 1-866-795-4435, Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (www.aseq.com).
